Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q: How do I know if the Wentworth of Willow Creek is right for me? 

No two people are exactly the same and everyone’s long-term care needs are distinct to them. It is important for people who need long-term care to choose the right facility to guarantee their happiness and sense of wellbeing. 

Wentworth of Willow Creek offers a spectrum of non-medical services for people who need mild to moderate personal care. Their community is suitable for people with a wide range of care needs, offering assistance with activities of daily living, medication management, and dietary planning. However, as an assisted living community, the Wentworth of Willow Creek is not equipped to provide skilled nursing care and is not licensed the same way as a nursing home. To see if Wentworth of Willow Creek may be a suitable choice for senior living, prospective residents can ask themselves the following questions: 

  • Are they confined to their bed? 
  • Do they need ongoing medical attention? 
  • Do they have memory impairments, Alzheimer's or dementia? 
  • Do they need rehabilitation?

The Wentworth of Willow Creek requires all residents to be ambulatory. They are not prepared to help older adults who are permanently confined to their beds, and may not admit applicants who are bedridden for the person’s safety. The same principle applies to people who require ongoing medical attention - the community is not licensed to provide long-term skilled nursing care and may not admit residents who need ongoing medical attention.

Management is very nice to me and there are a lot of activities at the community with a lot of residents that seem to enjoy them. Their activity coordinator really knows how to reach out to the residents and even my mom, who is very backwards on doing things, will participate sometimes. The place is always clean, I appreciate that it smells good and I have never seen anything that was gross. When my parents need the healthcare staff, they're always very good. Housekeeping is really good about getting garbage on a regular basis and they stop by to give my mother some validation, which is a nice, personal touch. In general, we're grateful and comfortable that they're there. It allows for them to have the maximum independence that they can have.

We love how the bathroom is so big in her apartment. The management there has been very responsive, super compassionate, and nice. The food looks really healthy, and there is plenty of it. I think there are plenty of activities in memory care. They do rides and all kinds of activities. The care staff has been amazing. They are responsive if you have questions. They are very friendly. The price is fair. It is a great place.

I'm very happy with everything at this community. All of the staff is friendly and helpful-- the management staff is accessible and responsive, and the nursing staff takes great care of him. In addition, the building is well maintained, the laundry is always done, and his apartment is kept clean. We're blessed to have found this place.

If anything comes up the care givers are quite responsive. Housekeeping does a good job, I have never noticed a problem. The activities are consistently well-scheduled and the care givers encourage him to participate. Food is good, and we�re satisfied with variety on the menu. Management responds well, when you have complaints or requests they're available and do what they can to take care of them.

Management is very responsive and the marketing lady goes above & beyond her title to help with both residents and families. The activities staff go out of their way to customize what might engage residents more and I am happy that it seems like they individually invite residents to participate. The care she gets there is fantastic, the staff really go out of their way for her personal care.

We just loved the management there. Whenever we had questions, we got an immediate reaction from them. There were activities every day, they had people come in and read to them and they had excursions. Ashley does a terrific job there of engaging them, she was just the most caring individual. It certainly was a good value for the money spent.

They got a new housekeeper that seems to be doing a good job. In terms of the healthcare staff, some of the girls are excellent. The aides have been really good as far as caring for my husband. I'm pretty pleased, they're working on trying to improve things.

Review avatar

Ethel Ashby

12 Dec 2019

We chose The Wentworth of Willow Creek for my mother because it was just so nice and it had the best opportunity for the least amount of money, so we just felt like it was the very best. Everyone in management is all so great, which is really good, and in terms of the healthcare staff, they're all wonderful and I haven�t met a single one that I haven't liked. While we haven't needed maintenance, that's a good thing and the building appears terrific, so everything is great. Regarding cleanliness, I am satisfied with the consistency of both, apartment cleaning and her laundry. In terms of the dining experience, she is very intent on being given what they give her, but I know they have good options there. Overall, I am satisfied with the services and accommodations she is provided with and she feels both, safe and comfortable at the community, so it's been a good experience thus far.

The building was nice, they made improvements to Memory Care while we were there, trying to make it more homey looking and decorations for holidays were great. I think the care staff tried really hard. I wasn't there a lot for meals but I think it was good. They seemed to try hard to make her happy

12 Dec 2019

My mother will be at The Wentworth of Willow Creek, 3 years this Easter and the community has been very careful of her as well as protective, so they're definitely doing a good job. It's always a once a month event where you think it's expensive, but if you divide it by 30 days, then it's like $155 per day which includes medical care, room & board and safety, so from that standpoint the value is reasonable. They have a beautiful coy pond out from the main dining room and they have 2 really great meeting rooms upstairs on the non-secured side, so I think the physical community itself is really great and she feels comfortable at the community. A new manager was recently hired and he understands problems and is responsive at working through them. Regarding activities, when I was over there today, they had 2 or 3 puzzles out with the residents, so they were having a fun time. Regarding her care, the staff gets some extra help from hospice services and between the two, her needs seem to be met, so I'd say they've been respectful, knowledgeable, accessible and responsive. Overall, it's a business with long hours and I am sure the margins are thin, but the physical plant, housekeeping and the way it's kept up, they're doing an excellent job, so I am pleased at this point with the community because this new manager seems to be really working hard in making sure that it's in good shape.

This community was chosen for my parents because it came highly recommended. It seems to be okay. I think we are good. My mom does wander a bit and they have been keeping a good eye on her. Housekeeping has been taking care of them and maintenance took care of any issues we had.

I think the value is fair. Management has been good. The Activity Director reaches out to each individual and I think that is really done well. In terms of care, they are all super nice, resepectful, responsive and personable. They always show up with a smile and will do anything that is asked.

We are very happy and so is my mom. I think she feels more safe and comfortable there than when we were trying to care for her at home. I am very happy with Tim as the new CEO there. Chelsea has been very helpful from the beginning as has Ashley the activities director. Ashley is very kind and patient with all the residents. I think she is exceptional. The activities are exceeding my expectations. The maintenance staff takes care of the issues we bring up in mom's room and I think they do a good job. We have a new nurse on staff there that we are happy with. The care is pretty good. There is a couple caregivers there that are wonderful and they are April and Cara.

I chose the community for my mother because of the price, it seemed very clean, and the ladies were very nice. Management is very good and informative and maintenance is very helpful. I know they've done her laundry, it looked like she had plenty of clean clothes to wear.

I feel somewhat comfortable with the value my sister receives. In regards to the activities, they do pretty well there. I really feel that things are very well maintained. I think there is a lot of attentiveness to things and that does stand out. My overall feeling is that I am pretty comfortable with things.

I chose the community for my mom because it was the brightest and most positive feeling community that we toured. I like that it was built with light in mind, with windows, bright lighting and bright d�cor. All the care staff was there to great mom when she came into the community. They reassured her that she can push her button anytime she needs anything. They seemed more like friends than just aides. Mom was able to get a corner unit which has an extra window so she lucked out because she likes the light. I like knowing she is taken care of and we can just enjoy her being our mom and not worry that she is going without. The food is something that even I would eat. It is appetizing and presented well. There is multiple activities throughout the day and they are all diverse.

Grace Jahries

12 Dec 2019

A friend had his mother at another Wentworth community and he liked it. That, and the location, it's two minutes away from my house, is why my mom and I chose the Wentworth. Having been in other communities, I'm very pleased with what this building is like. I've been very happy with the managers, mom seems to be enjoying the food so far, and housekeeping does a very nice job. There is a lot of variety in the activities, and mom is comfortable, and am comfortable knowing she is safe there. From all that I am hearing, the value is fair.

Review avatar

Margee Haymond

12 Dec 2019

It was a smaller facility and the people, the staff, seemed to be quite personally involved with the residents. Another reason we decided to go with The Wentworth of Willow Creek was because the Memory Care had rooms that had living areas, a kitchenette, living area and a separate bedroom and bathroom whereas most facilities I looked at only had suites and a lot of them had companion rooms, which we didn't want. A big reason we chose this one was, and lots of windows, light and high ceilings. A lot of them have an institutional feel and are dark and dingy, so I highly recommend the Willow Creek location for someone who has Memory Care issues.

Management is super proactive. Everything with them has been good. The quality of the food is good. Their apartment is always clean and super fresh. Every time I go in to this community, there are no odors. The community looks very well maintained and clean. Maintenance has been proactive and the transportation has been very good. The vehicles seem to be well maintained. The care has always been really good. It is nice that they communicate with us regularly at the community.

When we were looking for a place for my father we met with Kelsey in marketing and she made us feel so comfortable about choosing the Wentworth. The managment here is very accommodating and willing to answer any questions we have, so is the healthcare staff. When we had breakfast there before we decided it was very nice, very well presented. The housekeeping has been good, everything is tidy. The maintenance guy helps every time, you call him and he is there in a decent amount of time. Everything is going pretty well.

Lorrie Fisher

12 Dec 2019

I just moved my mother into the Wentworth because it met my mother's needs. It was recommended because of the Memory Care, and I felt the other residents are more like her. I'd recommend it. The caregivers spend a lot of time with the patients and talk to them more than they talk amongst themselves, which is nice. Everybody has been really available. Maintenance was very quick at getting what she needed set up. Everybody has been really good. The management team has been very helpful. When I reach out to them they give good feedback, they kind of walked me through all the processes, and they've been really accommodating. Compared to a lot of the other places I think it's a very good value. The Wentworth is one of the less expensive communities. With her on a tight budget, that was really helpful.

Things are going well at this community. My dad seems to enjoy the food and the activities are good. They keep him busy. Housekeeping has been pretty good. They are doing a good job with the laundry. The building is usually clean and I do not see anything out of whack over there. Everything looks good. What my dad needs taken care of is taken care of. We have been satisfied.

I think the apartment is good, it is not too big and it is not too small. My mohter-in-law feels safe and comfortable there. I think maangement has been good, they listen to my needs and my mothers need. The service has been wonderful and the chef has even gone up to my moms room and delviered her meal personally. Daniel has been wonderful. I think the variety is good. My mother in law likes it. They really have it looking nice and they serve it nicely. The food looks inviting and the chef does a good job with the budget he has. The LPN's have been great. I think they have a good mix of people that come from different backgrounds.

The former supervisor left it in good hands and the new manager is doing a good job. Management is responsive and I think they're doing a good job. If anything is broken, Maintenance fixes it right away. It really looks nutritious and tasty. My wife's food is all pureed. They take their time helping her at every meal, that's nice. I'd say we are pleased here.

I'd say the value is excellent. Melissa in the nursing staff is very good and the CNAs in the back have been very good. The care staff is doing exceptionally well. Kelsey was wonderful. There is a new director, Julie Black, is very nice. The front end reception desk is very good.

At the Wentworth the building always looks nice and clean. Everything is always working and they are doing a good job maintaining the overall building. The transportation system is consistent and accessible. My mom participates in all of the activities and loves every minute. The management team has been respectful and knowledgable of any concerns so far. We have had some concerns, but they have all been or are in the process of being resolved. Overall, I would be very likely to recommend the community, it's a great place!

We toured several places because we were wondering if we should move her to Idaho or Utah or what, and we made the right choice, hands down. Kelsey, the recruiter, did a phenomenal job we showed up in the dead of winter, with snow like crazy, just to help to get us in, because we came in from Idaho. And she made sure that there was a hot breakfast waiting for us. I've seen mom at a couple of the activities when she first came in January. She's lost a great deal of her capabilities since then so I don't know that she's participating in them now. I'm really happy with the consideration they've given her. I'd feel comfortable talking to anybody and letting them know what was needed. I don't know the specific process but I'm sure any of the people I talk to would be able to pass it forward to help us. They've done a wonderful job of renovating the inside of the area where mom is in the Alzheimer's unit. Overall, it has been such a great experience.

My mom's apartment is on the Northwest side and has nice high ceilings, which is nice. They keep me updated with how my mom is doing. We went in and spoke to the new Director and she was impressive, very knowledgeable, and listened to any concerns we had. The quality of food is pretty good. I think the building is very nice. It's a nice layout. With this new Director, she has people out cleaning up the grounds; they're taking good care of it. Overall, my mom really likes it there.

We have been so grateful for the Wentworth and for all that your community has done, and continues to do, for our family. My mom has been welcomed into the community with open arms and endless patience. We have been nothing but impressed with the helpful staff and with the patience of the Chef (and the staff) with my mom's continual suggestions. Thank you!

Charles has been to 3 other facilities before we found The Wentworth. This facility has a good mix of care and community for him. He has always been a little rebellious, but when he is comfortable and happy, he’s like a lamb. Kelsey is a goddess in my eyes. By that I mean, she magically makes things happen. She is so personable and kind with Charles. I am surprised she answers the phone when I call, because it’s always about Charles and his care! She not only takes care of him but is so happy and professional that it inspires all of the aides, CNA’s and Nurses. I am grateful for the cleanliness of the facility, the food is excellent and the open seating promotes a family atmosphere. I loved the space right away; it is very elevating. I am so excited for the new activities and reading that is taking place. My only complaint is that I cannot speak with my husband EVER. I think this is wrong. If I need him to hear the sound of my voice, it is just as important as medication. I feel alienated by this, and I realize that there may not be an easy answer, but I would like it addressed. That is the only reason I couldn’t feel good about a five star rating.

My parents moved in to Wentworth Willowcreek 12 months ago. My father was on hospice, and passed several months after the move. My 76 year old mom has some memory issues, so we were looking for a place that wasn't going to be too large and overwhelming for her. It took about a month for her to get used to the layout of the place. It would have been much harder if we had placed her in a huge center with hundreds of residents. My mom has learned the names of most of the residents and staff, and she has made several good friends. She loves the activities, and we love the staff. There are a large handful of long-time employees that have known my parents from the beginning. They help keep my mom grounded. I would imagine that there can be a lot of turnover in assisted living centers - it's not always glamorous work. There has definitely been some turnover with the staff at Wentworth, but it really is no surprise in that line of work. The core group of techs and administration have been there for a long time. We adore the new director – he is one of the most caring directors we encountered on any of our tours of assisted living/memory facilities. My mom looks forward to the activities the most at Wentworth. She loves flower arranging and crafts. She likes going on scenic drives. She loves the cooking class activities and loves playing BINGO. She never was really a BINGO lover before, but the residents have a lot of silly fun when they play with the activity coordinator. Mom loves all of the talent that comes through to perform- they certainly keep the residents entertained in the afternoons. When I can’t find my mom when I pop in for a visit, I always check the library or the balconies first. There are some nice areas and nooks to curl up with a good book. I love that there is a small park immediately next to the Wentworth – I can take my mom on a short walk when I come for a visit, and because there aren’t any stores or distractions within eyesight, my mom has never ventured too far away (a relief!). If you visit the Wentworth, the first thing you will notice is the main entry living room is often full of residents sitting around the fireplace reading or chatting. It is a very welcoming environment. My mom appreciates that she can attend a brief church service on Sunday mornings at 11:00am. It’s just right for her. All of the employees are genuinely kind to my mom, and many give her hugs and social support on a regular basis. There is a large handful of that staff that I appreciate more than they know. My mom’s room is the perfect size – it took a few months, but she quickly started calling it “home.” I was so happy when that happened. What a relief – a place that feels like home in that stage of life is hard to find. If a light bulb burns out, we tell the desk and it is always changed by the time we visit next. We have never complained about the cleanliness of her room – the trash is taken out on a regular basis, and the bathroom is always clean. The entire facility has a pleasant smell, and there always seems to be someone cleaning something. My mom doesn’t get lost in the crowd at Wentworth. She is cared for, and I feel safe leaving her in their care. No place is perfect, but this place feels great to my mom and to me.

I like that it was built with light in mind, with windows, bright lighting and bright décor. All the care staff was there to great mom when she came into the community. They reassured her that she can push her button anytime she needs anything. They seemed more like friends than just aides. Mom was able to get a corner unit which has an extra window so she lucked out because she likes the light. I like knowing she is taken care of and we can just enjoy her being our mom and not worry that she is going without. The food is something that even I would eat. It is appetizing and presented well. There is multiple activities throughout the day and they are all diverse.

A friend had his mother at another Wentworth community and he liked it. That, and the location, it's two minutes away from my house, is why my mom and I chose the Wentworth. Having been in other communities, I'm very pleased with what this building is like. I've been very happy with the managers, mom seems to be enjoying the food so far, and housekeeping does a very nice job. There is a lot of variety in the activities, and mom is comfortable, and am comfortable knowing she is safe there. From all that I am hearing, the value is fair.

It was a smaller facility and the people, the staff, seemed to be quite personally involved with the residents. Another reason we decided to go with The Wentworth of Willow Creek was because the Memory Care had rooms that had living areas, a kitchenette, living area and a separate bedroom and bathroom whereas most facilities I looked at only had suites and a lot of them had companion rooms, which we didn't want. A big reason we chose this one was, and lots of windows, light and high ceilings. A lot of them have an institutional feel and are dark and dingy, so I highly recommend the Willow Creek location for someone who has Memory Care issues.

Management is super proactive. Everything with them has been good. The quality of the food is good. Their apartment is always clean and super fresh. Every time I go in to this community, there are no odors. The community looks very well maintained and clean. Maintenance has been proactive and the transportation has been very good. The vehicles seem to be well maintained. The care has always been really good. It is nice that they communicate with us regularly at the community.

When we were looking for a place for my father we met with Kelsey in marketing and she made us feel so comfortable about choosing the Wentworth. The managment here is very accommodating and willing to answer any questions we have, so is the healthcare staff. When we had breakfast there before we decided it was very nice, very well presented. The housekeeping has been good, everything is tidy. The maintenance guy helps every time, you call him and he is there in a decent amount of time. Everything is going pretty well.

I just moved my mother into the Wentworth because it met my mother's needs. It was recommended because of the Memory Care, and I felt the other residents are more like her. I'd recommend it. The caregivers spend a lot of time with the patients and talk to them more than they talk amongst themselves, which is nice. Everybody has been really available. Maintenance was very quick at getting what she needed set up. Everybody has been really good. The management team has been very helpful. When I reach out to them they give good feedback, they kind of walked me through all the processes, and they've been really accommodating. Compared to a lot of the other places I think it's a very good value. The Wentworth is one of the less expensive communities. With her on a tight budget, that was really helpful.

Things are going well at this community. My dad seems to enjoy the food and the activities are good. They keep him busy. Housekeeping has been pretty good. They are doing a good job with the laundry. The building is usually clean and I do not see anything out of whack over there. Everything looks good. What my dad needs taken care of is taken care of. We have been satisfied.

I think the apartment is good, it is not too big and it is not too small. My mohter-in-law feels safe and comfortable there. I think maangement has been good, they listen to my needs and my mothers need. The service has been wonderful and the chef has even gone up to my moms room and delviered her meal personally. Daniel has been wonderful. I think the variety is good. My mother in law likes it. They really have it looking nice and they serve it nicely. The food looks inviting and the chef does a good job with the budget he has. The LPN's have been great. I think they have a good mix of people that come from different backgrounds.

The former supervisor left it in good hands and the new manager is doing a good job. Management is responsive and I think they're doing a good job. If anything is broken, Maintenance fixes it right away. It really looks nutritious and tasty. My wife's food is all pureed. They take their time helping her at every meal, that's nice. I'd say we are pleased here.

I'd say the value is excellent. Melissa in the nursing staff is very good and the CNAs in the back have been very good. The care staff is doing exceptionally well. Kelsey was wonderful. There is a new director, Julie Black, is very nice. The front end reception desk is very good.

At the Wentworth the building always looks nice and clean. Everything is always working and they are doing a good job maintaining the overall building. The transportation system is consistent and accessible. My mom participates in all of the activities and loves every minute. The management team has been respectful and knowledgable of any concerns so far. We have had some concerns, but they have all been or are in the process of being resolved. Overall, I would be very likely to recommend the community, it's a great place!

We toured several places because we were wondering if we should move her to Idaho or Utah or what, and we made the right choice, hands down. Kelsey, the recruiter, did a phenomenal job we showed up in the dead of winter, with snow like crazy, just to help to get us in, because we came in from Idaho. And she made sure that there was a hot breakfast waiting for us. I've seen mom at a couple of the activities when she first came in January. She's lost a great deal of her capabilities since then so I don't know that she's participating in them now. I'm really happy with the consideration they've given her. I'd feel comfortable talking to anybody and letting them know what was needed. I don't know the specific process but I'm sure any of the people I talk to would be able to pass it forward to help us. They've done a wonderful job of renovating the inside of the area where mom is in the Alzheimer's unit. Overall, it has been such a great experience.

My mom's apartment is on the Northwest side and has nice high ceilings, which is nice. They keep me updated with how my mom is doing. We went in and spoke to the new Director and she was impressive, very knowledgeable, and listened to any concerns we had. The quality of food is pretty good. I think the building is very nice. It's a nice layout. With this new Director, she has people out cleaning up the grounds; they're taking good care of it. Overall, my mom really likes it there.

The care staff is just great. I just received a call from someone this morning. I was very impressed that they would call and give me an update. Literally the first day my aunt was there they invited her to go play Bingo and brought her up. We saw that very positively. To immediately get her out and going to meet people was very positive. We are very satisfied with the management. I don't have enough nice things to say. They have been so responsive. It seems like everyone has truly cared about my aunt and us! They made sure that we were comfortable and that everything was done right during the move in. We are all very satisfied.

Overall I felt very good with the staff taking the time to talk to me and walk me through the initial legwork. There's a good atmosphere with communication which I appreciate. I feel that the facility is really well taken care of, inside and out. From what I'm seeing people seem to be pretty attentive to things. Yesterday I went to see her and she was in a gathering. My sister is definitely making steps forward to get involved in things. Kelsey and others assure me there are a number of activities going on. I feel comfortable with the price and I believe she feels pretty comfortable.

We were really impressed with the personnel. We were very impressed with Kelsi. I think they're all doing really well. Overall, my mother-in-law's been happy with the food there. They did have to hang a TV on the wall and that was done quickly, and they also hung some pictures on the wall for her. She has been getting really good care there. All of her needs are taken care of. Overall, we're happy she's there and don't have to worry about her being taken care of. It's a lot of relief knowing that she's being looked after.

Management is really good. They are very forward with things that are going on. They contact me when Dad's having issues, like when he's not compliant with taking his medications. I only know of one activity my father has been out on. He seemed to enjoy it. Just getting out was nice. The caregivers seem to be doing okay. I'm glad they have a doctor on site. I would say he feels safe, and he must feel comfortable .

Kudos to the group of caregivers that work with these residents with such issues so graciously. They are so gentle, even with the mean spirits that I've seen there. Everyone acts out in a different way and they handle it graciously. They do not get angry or rough with the residents even though the residents can get rough with them. I've seen a variety of what goes on, and the staff is fabulous. In a place where everybody is in some sort of briefs or diapers, it does not smell and you do not see any issues. They treat the residents with respect and compassion. They have music or a show on or activities if it's not meal time. Some people participate and some people prefer to walk around. It's a lockdown unit, but the staff handles it very gracefully. I'm happy with where my aunt's at.
